I am super excited to share my review on publication day for The Secret Of Cold Hill by Peter James
Cold Hill House has been razed to the ground by fire, replaced with a development of ultra-modern homes. Gone with the flames are the violent memories of the house’s history, and a new era has begun.
Although much of Cold Hill Park is still a construction site, the first two families move into their new houses. For Jason and Emily Danes, this is their forever home, and for Maurice and Claudette Penze-Weedell, it’s the perfect place to live out retirement.
Despite the ever present rumble of cement mixers and diggers, Cold Hill Park appears to be the ideal place to live. But looks are deceptive and it’s only a matter of days before both couples start to feel they are not alone in their new homes.
There is one thing that never appears in the estate agent brochures: nobody has ever survived beyond forty in Cold Hill House and no one has ever truly left…
It’s been four years since I read Cold hill and my god did I love it, so you can imagine my excitement when I received an ARC copy of this beauty. Jumping straight to the top of my book mountain it was certainly worth it..
Peter James bring us another nail biting, incredibly creepy story. When we go back to Cold Hill! The story is set in December with chapters counting down to Christmas. But I honestly think this book is perfect for Halloween.Things have changed since we last visited Cold Hill the house has burnt down and an estate of modern homes has been built. Jason and Emily have moved in and that’s just for starters.
I devoured it in one sitting. I simply couldn’t put it down. The author has weaved a story that, not only will it make your hairs stand up on end. But also also full of mystery. Taking the reader on a roller coaster journey.It is full of OMG moments that will leave you shocked to the core and will totally freak the hell out of you.
Like all of Peter’s novels it is a fast paced easy read and totally addictive. Making you question what’s going on and scared to look over my shoulder. The trees blowing outside my window did not help matters lol It sends shivers down my spine just thinking about it.
I was captivated by Jason and his art work, having been to art college myself I could relate to him and love the whole lets paint a picture in the studio. I really felt like I was there with him. BUT rather him than me……This book is creepier than creepy and not to be read in the dark!
I am a massive fan of ghost stories and this one ticked all the boxes for me. I bloody loved it! I have to say this would make a brilliant film
Massive thank you to Pan Macmillan for a copy. All thoughts are my own and are not biased in anyway.
